The Wisdom of Tozer
– Refuse to be average; let your heart soar as high as it will.
– Though the cross of Christ has been beautified by the poet and the artist, the avid seeker of God is likely to find it the same savage implement of destruction it was in the days of old. The way of the cross is still the pain-wrecked path to spiritual power and fruitfulness. So do not seek to hide from it. Do not accept an easy way or allow yourself to be patted to sleep in a comfortable church, void of power and barren of fruit. Do not paint the cross nor deck it with flowers. Take it for what it is, as it is, and you will find it the rugged way to death and life. Let it slay you utterly.
– I want the presence of God Himself or I don’t want anything at all to do with religion.
